An excellent, no-nonsense primer and introduction to sacred texts. Mar 4, 2007
Christian author and speaker Jim George applies his extensive degree learning from Talbot Theological Seminary to The Bare Bones Bible Handbook: 10 Minutes to Understanding Each Books of the Bible, a plain-text, straightforward guide to what the Old Testament and New Testament of the Bible have to say. Written for lay people, and designed so that the reader can absorb the essence of each book of the Bible in ten minutes at a time, The Bare Bones Bible Handbook is enthusiastically recommended as a quick-study aid especially for anyone new to bible studies. An excellent, no-nonsense primer and introduction to sacred texts.
Excellent Book Jan 13, 2007
Concise and insightful. Around five page summary, comments, and highlights for each book of the Bible. Very useful as a study aid and arouses desire to read the Bible more. Adds substance and gives a good vantage point from which to re-read Bible having noted the outline, purpose and tone of each book/letter in advance. Proud to add to the collection!
4 stars Sep 22, 2006
**** This is not a substitute for the Bible or even a Cliff Notes edition of it, but it is handy. Each one of the sixty-six books of Scripture is summarized in first a minimalistic fashion, then with a little more substance, and then how it applies to daily life is explained briefly. There are also relevant lists and facts included at the end of each chapter as well as a "where to find it" guide. This will help you clarify your focus while reading the Word. It is especially useful if you are engaged in a course such as the Bible in Ninety Days during which you run through the entire book at break-neck speed. This is your road map on the trip. ****
